Do you seek wisdom or are you content with what you already know? Do you desire to grow and to learn more about God? How far would you go to grow?
In today’s episode of All God’s Women we look at the Queen of Sheba, a woman who traveled thousands of miles to find answers to her most pressing questions about life and God.
The Queen of Sheba is one of only a few Old Testament women mentioned by Jesus. In one of his sermons, in response to scribes and pharisees looking for a sign, He said, “The queen of the south (referring to the Queen of Sheba) shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.”
How about you? Are you seeking God? Are you willing to do whatever it takes to find Him? Or are you too focused on what the world has to offer to realize that all the fame or wealth or power in the world can’t fill the hole we have inside of us, the hole that only God can fill.
It’s so easy to get caught up in our worldly possessions and forget that it’s all temporal. It can be gone in the blink of an eye. But godly wisdom, it’s what will see us through eternity. Let us seek for wisdom. And where do we seek? The word of God.
I challenge you to get out your Bible and to study in depth. Start with the Queen of Sheba. Take rabbit trails as you delve into people and places. Seek to find why God included each and every thing that’s in the Bible. Why is it there? What does it teach us about God? How does it apply to us? What is God saying to us?
If you’re new to Bible study, let me teach you a fun little trick to get more out of your Bible reading. It’s called the SOAP method. S is for Scripture. O is Observation. A is Application. And P is Prayer. As you read scripture, observe all that it is saying. Do research if you need to figure out what is going on on. Then apply it. What is it saying to you? And, of course, pray. Ask God to teach you, to make it clear what He’s trying to tell you, to open your eyes to see and your ears to hear.
